You Can Set Up An Online Automatic Contribution
Using online automatic contributions is one way to simplify your church giving. By setting up automatic recurring payments, you will not have to remember your checkbook or adequate cash when coming to church, and you can avoid the hassle of check writing. This is an easy way to make sure God receives the first fruits from your earnings.
How to Set Up Automatic Payments
The easiest way to make automatic payments is through your bank’s online banking website. For assistance, simply call your local branch to have them set up your online account.
Once you are logged into your bank’s online website, look for an option to pay bills online and set up a new payee (Open Door Church). Most banks allow you to set up recurring payment frequencies using specific dates. This will give you confidence checks will be sent when you know funds are available. For example, you can choose to give your tithe on the 1st of every month, or you can set up a tithe that corresponds with your pay periods–whether that is every two weeks or twice a month. Look for options to request reminders when a payment is being prepared, sent, or cashed.

Use Self-Addressed Postage-Paid Giving Envelopes
Simply request giving envelopes while at church or by email. You can use the postage-paid envelopes to mail in your tithes and gifts.
Give Using Your Credit or Debit Card
Giving your tithe and/or gift with a credit card will cost the church approximately 2% as a surcharge. If convenient, please consider making your contribution through an automatic bank payment or mail-in envelope as described above.
The Bible says, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver.” — 2 Corinthians 9:7
And, of course, we are always happy to receive your contributions at church where we have giving boxes in our worship center as well as in our foyer.
